Happy Black History Month! As we reflect, commemorate and start a conversation to carry on through the year, we heard from employees across the Evergreen Goodwill team who gave us their perspective on what Black History Month and this year’s theme means to them.
“If you have any dream, just go for it.” – Jamila
Jamila is not only a dreamer but a fighter and a survivor. After escaping an abusive living situation in Morocco, she made her way to the U.S. and eventually to Goodwill where she took classes to further her education. She’s now on track to become a licensed practical nurse and has a job that she loves!
This Black History Month, we are putting the spotlight on several designers who have been trailblazers in fashion. We invite you to learn more about their captivating stories on our blog and while shopping in store.
Evergreen Goodwill Partners with Local Employers to Host Event Connecting Community Members with Job Opportunities and Recourses

Translation services, resume and interview support will also be provided by Evergreen Goodwill.
“You give yourself a chance to actually make a career.” – Matt
Successfully receiving his GED after taking classes with Evergreen Goodwill, Matt is now on track to become a licensed journeyman electrician!
“Every purchase helps fund the programs that provide people across the region with education and workforce skills. And what better time to give back to your communities and be intentional about your shopping than over the holidays?”
Check out some SPOOKtacular, thrifted Halloween costumes put together by Evergreen Goodwill's DIY Guy Gary Foy for the hosts of KING 5 Evening.
“Especially in this economy, you want to take classes to help promote and build on what you know. At Goodwill, that’s what we offer. We offer it for free and thousands of people go through it every year.” - Gary Foy, Evergreen Goodwill
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to show off some unique, thrifted Halloween costume looks on FOX 13's Good Day Seattle.
Spooky season may be upon us, but there’s nothing scary about supporting our mission to break down barriers to education and employment! We were thrilled to be able to showcase on New Day NW a handful of the endless possibilities shopping at Goodwill this Halloween can have.
